In Which This Is The Essence Of Who I Am Now


by Molly Lambert

"Teachers want us to work, and I say fine, I'll work. But you've gotta let me do the kind of work that I wanna do. And for me, it's my drum kit, man. This is my passion. This is the essence of who I am now. But before I had this, I was lost, too. You see what I'm saying? You need to find your reason for living. You've gotta find your big, gigantic drum kit." - Nick Andopolis

This Recording is my big gigantic drum kit. It is my passion, my reason for living. Like most passion projects, it doesn't earn me one red cent. If any eccentric billionaires out there wanna fix that, feel free to make out all blank checks to This Recording at JOHNBONHAMISGOD@gmail.com.

But I will keep doing it anyway for free forever, because I really don't think I could stop even if I wanted to. Blogging is like heroin. I want to inject HTML and listen to free jazz.

I'm basically a blog in a vat, and I need to tell you about how giant jellyfish are taking over the earth anyway. But before I had This Recording, I was lost. And it just so happens that Wordpress makes a nice tall podium for this short little mouthy sandwich girl. This is my passion. I wish you the best of luck in finding yours.

All right! Gene Krupa!

Nick Andopolis would dig Dead Meadow because they are heavy like a ton of bricks. Heavy like John Bonham and Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. Heavy like their lead singer Jason Simon's dad's David Simon's TV opuses The Wire and Homicide: Life On The Streets. Heavier Than Heaven.
